Bait was everywhere, but difficult to make. Made one gbm and headed for yellowtail country. Got picked up by something deep, however it just raked my bait to shreds. Tried yo-yo fishing for a while, but no takers.
Went back inside and the macs wanted to bite better and made 5 pieces quickly. By this time it was going on 10:30, so I headed back out to deeper water, and preceded to slow troll in beautiful blue water and gorgeous sunshine for nada. Decided to troll out by the outside line of lobster buoys, I'm guessing the canyon edge. Got bite and caught what I have not seen for years, a bullet tuna. It looked like a skipjacks head, and part of the body, however it had bright florescent blue and black stripes on the top rear sides.
Then I put out my last bait and not 2 min. later, I get bite again. And what to my wondering eyes appear, a 150 - 175# mako! Jumps twice and breaks me off...Good! That was way to much shark for me and my yak to handle.
I wind in my gear and head for the beach. Landed in ankle slappers and a bizillion people on the beach and rentals.

All in all, great day to be on the water, however, it was way to busy for me to do another weekend trip for a while.
BTW, lots of boat traffic today also.

Tight Lines,

Geno

Must of been a school of those. I got one today as well. Did you measure the pectoral? Mine was the longer fin which makes it a frigate tuna.

Sounds like an awesome day Geno......very cool looking tuna. Must have been fun hooking up with that Mako while it lasted.

Catch 22 in the NC right now.....loving the swell for surf but making it hard to find a launch/landing window for fishing.

You fish killing machine. STOP kissing Tony's ass by wearing Krocs...the same color even!!!...

Shove that bullet tuna into my bug bait cages and let's split the catch!

What do you mean...Tony's wearing my crok style

If I'd known I would of and the Bony also.

I needed a bigger boat for that Mako, that's for sure.
